Zolder DTM: Start time, how to watch and more

The Zolder circuit in Belgium plays host to the third round of the 2021 DTM season on August 6-8. Here's how and when you can watch both the races this weekend.

One of the major talking points at Zolder will be the addition of ex-Formula 1 driver Christian Klien, who will be making his DTM debut at the wheel of a JP Motorsport McLaren 720S GT3.

Klien is expected to complete a part campaign this season and his inclusion brings the grid up to 20 cars, the highest in the series since 2018.

Audi's Kelvin van der Linde heads to Zolder as the championship leader, having bagged a victory and a second podium in the opening four races of the season.

Red Bull driver Liam Lawson trails van der Linde by just four points, with Lausitzring winners Philip Ellis and Maximilian Gotz holding third and fourth positions in the standings.

Ferrari, Audi and Mercedes have all won races this year, leaving Lamborghini and BMW as the only two full-season manufacturers to open their account.
